So easy! So tasteful! You will be all over this spread - I PROMISE. With the global quarantine in place, many of us have been staying home. We have more time on our hands to try out new recipes or to prep more home-cooked meals. We are (hopefully) eating healthier and are conscientious of what we're putting into our food. One of my favorite healthy breakfasts include avocado and eggs. While I could easily buy a jar of avocado spread (at least I think I can) to make my life easier, why not skip the preservatives and (maybe) extra sugar to make the spread from scratch?! Well, look no further, because I have an easy recipe for you to try and even modify to make it your own!
About 20 minutes. And the best part?? NO COOKING NECESSARY.
1) Start off by chopping your cilantro and green onion and combine in a separate bowl. Set aside for later.
2) Cut each avocado in halves. Remove seed by chopping into the middle (see 2nd photo) and twist to loosen from its place. Discard (or for you garden aficionados - plant 'em)! Scoop the avocado "meat" into a separate mixing bowl.
3) Add the lime, mayo, garlic powder, salt, and pepper and mix ingredients by smushing the ingredients with a fork. The lime seems to act like a natural preservative while the mayo provides its creamy consistency. This step takes about 3 - 5 mins...basically no time at all.
You should get a little something like this (the chunkier, the better)...
4) Remember the cilantro/green onion mix that you set aside earlier? Now you can add to the avocado mix. Fold it in with a *spatula or spoon.
*TIP: I like to use a spatula because it helps to get every last bit when transferring from the mixing bowl into a container for later use.
While you may not be able to consume the whole mixture in one meal, you can save for later. However, I don't recommend saving the mixture for more than 5 days. You can use a Tupperware container to keep it air-tight. I like to use a glass container because I like to be able to see the mixture in case it goes bad before the 5 days are up (whereas most Tupperware containers have a cloudy appearance to them).
Go ahead and try making this spread for yourself. It's the best that I've tried and it's so easy. Like I always say...the simpler the recipe, the better. My husband, kids, and I have so much going on that it's a Godsend when I have recipes like these - especially if it helps us avoid microwaveable meals that aren't always healthy or filling.
Tag me on instagram @mari_tran78 - I'd love to see what you create (whether it's my version or your own)! Ciao and stay safe out there!
